Changes ... 

Union University, a 

coeducational liberal arts 
college owned and operated 
by the Tennessee Baptist 
Convention, is the descen- 
dant of two earlier in- 
stitutions — West Tennessee 
College and its predecessor 
Jacl<son IVIale Academy, and 
Union University at IVIur- 

Jackson Male Academy 
was chartered during the 
1825 session of the 
Tennessee legislature. The 
academy provided, 

educational opportunities for 
students from the Jackson 
and surrounding areas on a 
campus which now serves as 
the core of the current cam- 
pus and on which the majori- 
ty of the present buildings 
are located. 

During the late 1800's 
there was continually grow- 
ing a desire within the Bap- 
tist groups in the state to 
combine their resources to 
form one college.

In 1875 Southwestern 

Baptist University opened 
its doors to 120 students 
enrolled in two depart- 
ments — literature and 
science, and law. The 
growth of the school soon 
created a demand for new 
facilities, and in 1877 a 
building was begun to 
house the academic 
areas. The next year when 
it opened, it was filled to 
overflowing and ad- 
ditional space was again 

During the next few 
years the physical 
facilities were enlarged, 
and in the summer of 
1895, through the 
generosity of W.T. Adams 
of Corinth, Miss., a dor- 
mitory to house male 
students and many faculty 
was erected. Living in 
Adams Hall was on a 
cooperative plan with all 
expenses being shared by 
tenants. The first year 
board averaged $7.03 per 
month in addition to the 
charge of $5 per term of 
five months. 

At first young women 
were boarded in the 
homes of the area 
residents, but in 1897 a 
girls' dormitory was 
erected. Mr. and Mrs. J.R. 
Lovelace, of Martin, gave 
the funds to furnish the 
building and named the 
dorm Everett Lovelace 

Also In that year a new 
chapel was begun but not 
completed for two years. It 
was named Powell Chapel 
in honor of W.D. Powell, 
the chief sponsor of the 
money-raising effort.

The faculty of Union in the late 1870's. 

In the early 1900's there was a 
movement to change the name of 
the college and on September 17, 
1907, the Board of Trustees of- 
ficially changed the name of 
Southwestern Baptist University 
to Union University. 

The night of January 12, 1912, 
the administration building and 
Powell Chapel burned to the 
ground. Within 18 months a new 
building. Barton Hall, was 
reconstructed on the same site 
and housed the academic 
facilities, offices, and also Powell 

The college secured a new 
charter October 20, 1925 which 
gave the Tennessee Baptist 
Convention the right to select the 
Board of Trustees. 

In 1948, the college was fully 
accredited by the Southern 
Association of Colleges and 
Schools, the regional accrediting 

For the next few years Union 
continued to expand; new courses 
were added, and in 1962, a 
Department of Nursing offering 
the Associate of Arts degree join- 
ed the college's Bachelor of Arts, 
Music, and Science degrees 
which were available for students. 

Pep has always characterized Union's cheerleaders. 

1940— "sunning" at the Library. 

College Is a change, a 
transitional stage where 
young people take a 
drastic look at life and 
where they are going. 
College involves less 
dependence on parents 
and other adults coupled 
with more responsibility 
for the student. 

Bob Dylan, in the early 
'60's wrote "the times they 
are a-changin." Aside 
from the obvious changes 
in the physical plant of the 
college, there are other 
changes taking place in 
the world that affect our 
lives, both present and 
future. College students 
do not exist in a vacuum 
— we are a part of the^ 
world around us.

The energy crisis 
affected all of us, but to 
varying degrees. 
Everyone was urged to 
turn off unneeded lights 
[and heaters. The college 
sported signs above all 
light switches reminding 
us to conserve energy. 

The gas shortage and 
the inflated prices asked 
for gas also hit the college 
student hard; it meant 
fewer trips to Memphis 
;and even fewer trips home 
for visits. 

Sometimes changes 
are forced upon us, as In

IS apparent that the 
current double standards 
concerning dormitory 
regulations and hours 
may be changed to meet 
the Federal requirement. 
Only time will tell how 
Union will deal with the 
problem. For sure, there'll 
be some changes. 

Revivals can help us all change.

Union's New Campus trom the air. m October, 1974. 

Union's massive develop- 
ment program began in the 
nnid-60's when it became ap- 
parent it would not be feasible 
for the college to continue 
building at its present location 
This was due in part to the ex 
tremely high prices being ask- 
ed for surrounding property 
and the unwillingness of some 
owners to sell. 

In 1968 the Tennessee Bap- 
tist Convention approved the 
plan of the college to move to a 
new location. During the next 
few months a total of 284 acres 
on U.S. Highway 45 Bypass was 

The steps were long and 
many in reaching the goal of a 
new campus. In the process 
Union came close to moving to 
Shelby County because of the 
possibility of two large financial 
gifts from Memphis 
businessmen. After discussion 
and much controversy, the gift 
was withdrawn and Union's 
future remained in Jackson. 

Plans for the new campus 
were developed; an advance- 
ment campaign was initiated to 
secure required funds, and on 
May 7, 1974, the site was 
dedicated and ground was

Sharon Steele welcomes some of the children. 

Art Murphy calls for a game. 

Lincoln Courts housing project 
playground became the site of an 
extra-curricular Bible study program 
for the children of the complex every 
Tuesday from 3:00 until 5:00 p.m. 

Throughout the semester Union 
students took the time to become a 
friend of a child who might not know 
what a true friend really is and to 
share the joy and love of Jesus with 
these children. 

The Idea for the Lincoln Court Bi- 
ble Club began in the mind of Bob 
Tucker and germinated with the 
assistance of Carol Wise and Brad 
Smith, who served as co-chairmen 
for the weekly program. 

Earl Wiman greets a friend. 

Commenting on the program, 
Carol Wise said, "When we arrived at 
the park children began running 
from all directions to meet us. it was 
one of the most beautiful sights 
have ever seen as college students 
knelt down to become a friend of 
preschool and elementary school 

"One of our problems was that we 
planned for 200 kids and as more 
continued to come we had to im- 
provise, but God helped us and 
proved that He still cares," said Brad

More Long Lines 

Fall semester began with registration lines. The un- 
pleasant task was expedited this year by careful planning 
and a more logical arrangement of stations. 

An annual event held each fall at Union is the 
President's Reception, where each student and faculty 
member is given the opportunity to meet President and 
Mrs. Robert Craig, as well as the president of the Student 
Government Association.

In short, college is a personal 
thing that will provide many 
memories and experiences aside 
from the education.

student Involvement 
in the New Campus 

Seeing a need for the Union student body to be 
aware of the progress being made on the new cannpus 
construction, Tim Wills began working on a new campus 
day for students. 

With the help of the Student Publications, the frater- 
nities, sororities, BSD and numerous individuals, the idea 
became reality. Classes were dismissed from 11:00 a.m. 
until 1:00 p.m. during the day, encouraging students to at- 

Buses from several local churches were used to 
transport students from the present campus to the new 
location. Upon their arrival, guided tours of the facilities 
were given by specially chosen students. 

Lunch was served on the grounds in the afternoon at 
the old campus. 

For several days prior and after the tour, displays of 
color charts, interior designs, and samples of classroom, 
chapel and lounge seats were on exhibition in the Ad- 
ministration Building. 

Two of the coordinators of the program, Mrs. Betty Foellinger, left, and 
Tim Wills oversee loading of buses.

Students begin leaving with the Academic Complex in the background. 

Union University, in its 149th an- 
nual commencement exercises held 
June 1 , graduated 210 students who 
received Bachelor of Arts, Science, 
and Music degrees as well as 
Associate of Arts in Nursing degrees. 

Recognized as tiie most outstan- 
ding student of the June class was 
Kay Brown, Jackson, with Carol 
Boggs, Memphis, receiving the 
honor for the August class. 

Dr. Jenl(in Lioyd Jones, publisher 
of the Tuisa (Oklahoma) Tribune, 
delivered the major address of the 
services and exhorted the students 
to utilize their power to think, above 
all other assets. 

Dr. Raiph Norton, executive 
secretary of the Tennessee Baptist 
Convention, delivered the bac- 
calaureate address at First Baptist 
Church. He pointed out to the 
students the lessons learned from 
history, psychology, science and 
religion and emphasized the impor- 
tance of developing a character in 
congruence with the will of God. 

Other activities related to gradua- 
tion included the annual awards 
program, the senior dinner and the 
reception. A special student art show 
was held in the Union galleries.

college students find time for a little 
fun and frolic . . . now and then. 

The traditional "Freshman Week" 
was held this year with a noticeable 
lack of participation. Some contend 
the week is childish, while others say 
it is fun and continue to participate in 
the activities which included a greas- 
ed pig chase for the women, which 
was won by Marci Davie. 

The cafeteria staff sponsored a 
Halloween party for the students and 
faculty with prizes awarded to the 
most original costumes. 

C. J. Rorle chases after greased pig. 

Winner — Marci Davie.

To Express Opinions 

This year Union students found several things to 
comment about, including mandatory chapel, inequality in 
dormitory hours, and the fact that the library is closed 
Wednesday evenings, Saturday afternoons and all-day 

Chapel has for several years received a great deal of 
criticism from Union students. Some resent being made to 
attend twenty-one chapels a semester; others say it is bor- 
ing and a waste of their time. It does seem if the college 
sees fit to continue its chapel program, an effort should be 
made to upgrade the quality of the programs. If the 
answer to the chapel is not voluntary chapel, then there 
should be strong efforts to have better, more stimulating 
programs. At least if we have to attend the programs, they 
should be worth our time. 

Title IX of the Higher Education Act has caused 
academic officials throughout the country to reassess 
sexual discrimination on their campuses. Union has had 
to look primarily at the inequality of dormitory hours. Men 
have no hours where the women have rather strict hours 
ranging from 10:30 p.m. on week nights for freshmen to 
1 :00 p.m. on weekends for upperclassmen. At this time no 
decision has been made as what the college will do in the 
fall concerning dorm hours, but it is quite evident the 
hours will have to be in line with Title IX. 

The hours of operation of Summar Library have been a 
controversial topic on campus for some time. Although 
students have demanded more hours, the library never 
seemed to be very crowded. Statistics prove the student 
body, as well as the faculty, do not use the library as ex- 
tensively as they might. Even with the statistics, the ad- 
ministration has agreed to open the library on Wednesday 
evenings and extend the hours of operation on Saturday 

It is hoped the student body and faculty will make 
better use of the library, especially in light of the change, 
since the library is the focal point of any academic institu-

Moods, Expressions, 
Etc. . . . 

With the wide variety of personalities at Union, we 
have tried to capture photographically as many different 
moods of students as possible. All is not bliss at college, 
there are those who are lonely and reaching out for a 
friend, there are people desperately searching for 
something to fill the void in their lives. At the same time 
there are students who are content, happy and 
celebrating life everyday.

The Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity 
was founded at Boston University on 
November 2, 1909. In 1939, the 
fraternity merged with Theta Kappa 
Nu, which was the largest merger in 
the history of the fraternity world. 

In the early 1970's Lambda Chi 
Alpha completely re-evaluated its 
program of education, doing away 
with the pledge program and replac- 
ing it with the associate member 
program. This progressive step was 
a first in the Greek world. 

The fraternity's colors are purple, 
green and gold, and the white rose is 
the flower. 

Locally, Lambda Chi Alpha 
celebrated its tenth anniversary as a 
chartered chapter during the fall 
semester with a formal banquet held 
at the Holiday Inn — Midtown, 
Memphis. Named as the 1975 Cres- 
cent Girl was Sue Ellen Witherington. 
Roy Weaver was the recipient of the 
Rick White Senior Service Award. 

The chapter was active in com- 
munity affairs during the year, such 
as, the Lion's Club paper drive, 
March of Dimes and Sheriff's Youth

Zeta Tau Alpha started the year 
with a Founders' Day dinner enjoyed 
by alumnae, members, and pledges. 
In October, Zeta's Date Party 
featured double-decked submarine 
sandwiches and a hayride. During 
Greel< Weel<, the men of ATO, SAE, 
and LXA were treated with 
refreshments, and the faculty was in- 
vited for coffee. 

Zeta Tau Alpha has placed in All- 
Sing for the last eight years. This 
year Zeta won first place. Women's 
Group competition, and second 
place, Ensemble. The Mother- 
Father-Daughter luncheon in 
February was highlighted by the an- 
nouncement of new officers. 

The annual spring banquet was 
held in Memphis. At Thanksgiving 
and Christmas, the Zetas visited and 
took gifts to the children at Happy 
Hallow, Jackson's school for the 
mentally retarded. 

Beta Omega chapter came to 
Union on December 12, 1935.

The Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity was founded at 
Richmond, Virginia, on September 11, 1865. It was the 
first National Fraternity founded after the Civil War. Its 
colors are sky blue and gold and the flower is the white tea 
rose. The Maltese Cross is the symbol of ATO. 

Alpha Tau Omega was established to unite fraternally 
the young men of the South with those of the North and to 
foster a brotherhood dedicated to achieving and 
cherishing permanent peace. It sought these ends by bin- 
ding men together with the strongest eternal principles 
and teaching them to stand together and contend for the 
supremacy of good over evil. 

Originally established at Murfreesboro as Tennessee 
lota. Beta Tau chapter transferred to Union University and 
was chartered February 28, 1894. Beta Tau chapter at 
Union is the oldest ATO chapter to never close its doors. 

The ATO Congress was held in Memphis on August 
17-21, 1974. During this Congress, the Union chapter was 
named the 1974 Province Winner and received the Com- 
munity Awareness Award. 

To begin the new school year, a hayride was enjoyed 
by the brothers and their dates. 

Ebbie Clark was crowned chapter Sweetheart on 
November 2 at the Downtowner Hotel in Memphis. Outgo- 
ing Sweetheart, Betty Jackson honored the chapter by 
presenting the brothers a painting of the ATO House done 
by brother Don Carmichael. 

The ATO "Follies" was presented for the second 
semester in a row in Powell Chapel in November. The sar- 
castic program took a look at college life at Union. The 
Tau's won the Campus All-Sing for the second year in a 

Much time was used during the winter term for plan- 
ning and preparing for a new house on Union's new cam- 

Spring was marked by Founder's Day in March. 
Many of the ATO alumni in the West Tennessee area came 
back to become reacquainted with the chapter. 

ATO is looking forward to new challenges and even 
greater achievements in helping to unite the new campus.

The five founders of Chi Omega began this sorority 
April 5, 1895, at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, 
Arl<ansas. The sorority, although based on six purposes, 
has as its main emphasis scholarship. Chi Omega has the 
open motto of "Hellenic Culture and Christian Ideals." The 
sorority has the white carnation as its flower, cardinal and 
straw for its colors, and the owl as an emblem. 

Upsilon of Chi Omega received its charter in 1903. 
Being the first women's fraternity at Union, it was also the 
fourth oldest chapter of Chi Omega in the nation. Up- 
silon's chapter was withdrawn in 1911 because of the 

small number of women students enrolled at Union. 
However, in 1924, the charter was reinstated and the 
chapter became known as New Upsilon. 

With promises that this will be the best year yet, Up- 
silon has been active in all campus activities and 
organizations. This year has been filled with athletic and 
faculty receptions, as well as date parties. The height of 
the year was the Campus All-Sing. Held November 22, the

Working Together 
For the Progress 
Of Greeks... 

The National Panhellenic Conference is an organiza- 
tion of twenty-six national sororities banded together for 
the furtherance of sorority life, scholarship and intellectual 

At Union, the Panhellenic Council deals with inter- 
sorority relations and cooperates with the college to main- 
tain the social standards of the school. The council is com- 
posed of three delegates each from Zeta Tau Alpha and 
Chi Omega, as well as an alumna from each sorority. 

The Inter-fraternlty Council is the governing body for 
the fraternities on campus. Regulations for formal rush 
and membership recruitment are composed and enforced 
by the IFC. This year the IFC has been busy working with 
the college on plans for the new Greek housing. One of the 
projects undertaken jointly by the IFC and Panhellenic 
Council was an Open House in honor of the Trustees.

Fraternity Sweethearts 

Greek Candids 

The image of Greek fraternities and sororities ties 
undergone a tremendous change in the last few years. 
After the turbulent 1960's, there was a need for Greeks to 
take a serious look at their objectives, what they had to 
offer the college student of the 70's and where they were 
headed. Gone was the image of the campus snob, "hell 
raiser" and social elite group. Instead, fraternities and 
sororities across the country began working with the com- 
munity through service projects. 

This change Is evident at Union; each Greek 
organization is involved in numerous activities which 
benefit the Jackson community. In lieu of building a 
homecoming display this year, the women of Zeta Tau 
Alpha donated $100 to Happy Hollow School for the men- 
tally retarded. Other activities have included the Greeks 
working with Youth Town, the Boy's Club, the March of 
Dimes, and the Heart Fund.

Working with 
'Changes' All Year 

The staff of the 1975 Lest We Forget yearbook began 
their work early in June, 1974. Joe Hedges, editor-in- 
chief, traveled to the University of Wisconsin at 
Whitewater for an Intercollegiate Press yearbook seminar. 
Upon returning to Tennessee, work was begun on the 
opening section of the yearbook that was to include a 
history of Union University. 

Bobby Grissom, the yearbook photographer, attend- 
ed a photographic workshop in Henderson, North 
Carolina, which was sponsored by Olan Mills Studios. 

Working with the theme of "Changes" in anticipation 
of the move to the new campus this fall, the staff worked 
hard to make this a special yearbook. Countless hundreds 
of hours and weekends were devoted to the 1975 edition. 
Every effort was made to make this year's book for the 
students; the campus life was greatly enlarged from 
previous years.

Journalism Students 
Get Practical 

The staff of the Cardinal and Cream served the 
college as a tool of information, opinion and expression. 
The newspaper tried to capture the different moods of the 
students, through coverage of organizations, fraternities, 
and sororities, sports and special events. 

This year saw the arrival of Lil' Red on the Cardinal 
and Cream staff. LIT Red is a bright red cardinal who 
hopped out of the masthead and will be showing up in the 
paper from time to time to give a bird's eye view of cam- 
pus life, as well as making comments. 

The staff is made primarily of students who are work- 
ing toward a Journalism minor. Mrs. Betty Foelllnger 
serves as the adviser for the paper. 

For the first time the Student Publications entered the 
homecoming display contest and received second place

tance of art itself as a beneficial factor to life. The forty 
members participate in such activities as creating 
backdrops for All-Sing and the Miss Union Pageant, help- 
ing various groups on campus with whatever publicity is 
needed and displaying their own work for exhibition. 

One does not need to be an art major or minor in 
order to attend the bi-monthly meetings. Anyone who has 
an interest in art may become an active member. The 
faculty sponsors are Dr. Pat Pinson, Grove Robinson and

In their monthly meetings the French Club showed 
slides from France, sang French songs and watched films. 

Several interesting programs were presented at 
meetings held by the Spanish Club. Mary Frances Buntin 
told of her travels in Mexico during the summer. Also, the 
club decided to write a constitution and by-laws which 
would be helpful in years to come.

Baseball Season 
Proves Disappointing 

Producing a winner In college athletics is becoming 
more difficult each season. The final record of the Union 
baseball team bears direct evidence to this fact. 

Due to graduation and inexperience on the part of the 
players and new coaches, the team suffered through its 
first losing season In recent years. The season, however, 
cannot be considered a failure. Significant strides were 
made In the area of experience which should carry 
through to the coming years. The final record of 18 wins 
and 24 losses is not Indicative of the true ability of the 

The year began on the road in Texas. There the 
Bulldogs ran Into teams much older and more widely 
recruited on the major college level. The Unlonites return- 
ed to Jackson sporting a 3-6 record. One major reason for 
the poorer than usual showing in Texas was Injuries. The 
Dogs played a number of the games with key personnel 
either injured or out of action. 

As usual, Pan American University gave the Union 
nine the greatest difficulties handing the Bulldogs three 
straight losses. Union was well represented, however, as 
the team battled each game until the final out. 

When the Bulldogs returned home, they found the 
going just as rough. The tough "major college" schedule, 
which is a tradition at Union, proved to be a day-to-day 
test for the young Bulldogs. 

Baseball Team— Front row: (left to right) Larry Ziegler, Mike Long, 
Tommy Sadler, Timmy Sil<es, Donnell Wilson, Stewart Roby, Paul Shea. 
Second row: Brad Simmons, Mark Yates, Bobby Day, Jackie Vaughan, 
Paul Albea, Barry White, Randy Mays, Mike Nason. Third row: Coach 

Danny Davis, Andy Rushing, Maurice Holmes, Marty Clements, Randy 
Franks, Sam Thompson, Scott Butler, Rodney Lanham, Assistant Coach 
Keith Cabanaw. 

The brightest aspect of the season was the Union 
championship In the first College Invitational tournament. 
Playing such notables as Valparaiso and Wooster College, 
plus rival Lambuth, the Unionites took an upset victory in 
the tournament by splitting with Lambuth, and taking two 
games from Wooster. 

From there the Bulldogs advanced into the bulk of 
their schedule. Playing such major teams as Austin Peay 
State University, Ole Miss, Dave Lipscomb, and St. Fran- 
cis University, Union struggled much of the season with a 
losing record. Each game, however, taught the Bulldogs a 
lesson in the essentials of the game. Many of the games 
were only decided by the margin of a single run with Union 
seeming to have the luck always fall against them. 

The 1974 season ended with a road trip to middle 
Tennessee to entertain Austin Peay and David Lipscomb. 
Here the Bulldogs lost all three contests by close margins. 
On the last day of the season, the Unionites split with 
Trevecca to seal the final record of 18-24. 

Despite the losing record the season was exciting to 
the very end. The fans supported the team all the way. The 
team nor the coaches have anything to be ashamed of; the 
tradition of Union was upheld even in losing. 

Next season brings forth the challenge to make prac- 
tical use of the knowledge gained from the season before. 
From past indications, it is evident that a winning season 
should be in order. 

The Bulldogs rest between games. 

Jimmy Cox delivers a solid hit for Union. 

Pat Stegall heads home with another run. 

Despite the losing season, the Bulldogs benefited 
from excellent senior leadership throughout the year. 

From the performances of Keith Cabanaw, Billy Ray 
Cox and Jimmy Gammon, the Union fans were treated to 
many exciting games. Their presence will be sorely miss- 
ed in the seasons to come. With them goes some of the 
tradition that has been Union baseball for many years. 

It remains to be seen how well their memory will in- 
spire the teams of the future. 

Tommy Sadler delivers another strike. 

Coach Davis gives signals to his team. 

Last season the Bulldogs sported a new pair of 
coaches. Dr. David Blackstock, the new Athletic Director, 
and Danny Davis took over the coaching ranks. 

Faced with the problems of poor recruiting and lack 
of experienced personnel, especially on the pitching staff, 
the two coaches did an excellent job throughout the 

Next season will see yet another change, Dr. 
Blackstock moves to full-time duty as the Athletic Director 
while Coach Davis assumes the full load of the baseball 

Jimmy Gammon watches the pitch sail by.

Winning, Losing, 
and Figiiting . . . 

The Union University Basketball Bulldogs had a 
season that no one word can describe. At times the team 
looked brilliant and at times lackadaisical. At times they 
won, lost, cried, fought, and laughed. 

The Bulldogs opened the season in fine form, as they 
won their first three games in a row. Then taking to the 
road, the "Dogs" met their first defeat at the hands of the 
Bethel Wildcats. The Bulldogs ran their record to four and 
one as they defeated Bryan College on the road in Dayton, 

The Bulldogs put many hours into preseason practice working on lay- 

Disaster then struck as the "Dogs" lost the next seven 
games in a row. Included in this streak were such powers 
as Austin-Peay State University, American Christian 
College and LeMoyne-Owen. 

On Saturday, February 1, the Bulldogs traveled to 
Memphis to take on the Memphis State Tigers. Before 12,- 
000 people, the team played a super ballgame in the first 
half. The Bulldogs could not stay with the talent-laden 
Tigers, as Memphis State ran up the score in the second 

Coach Simmons telling it like it should be. 

The "Dogs" ran into some bad luck in the second half 
of the season. Belnnont won in over-time Christian 
Brothers College won on a basket in the last 20 seconds, 
and then LeMoyne-Owen won with three seconds left. 

The record for the season was sub-par. We all had 
great hopes for the team as the season opened, but it 
was not long before these hopes had been dashed to the 
ground. Yet the season was not lost. The team 
represented itself very well before some of the top teams 
in the South. Next season brings forth new challenges not 
only for those players returning, but also to those that will 
come in wishing to be a part of the Bulldog program. We 
feel that the Bulldogs will again step into the role as one of 
the top teams in this area. 

Bulldog power!

Gary Grissom makes the move in on Bryan College. 

Gary Vaughn: 6', 155 lb. Freshman guard from Memphis, Tennessee. An 

excellent athlete. He played at the point position and was counted on 
heavily. We looked for much from him in leading our offensive. 

John Green: 6'2", 185 lb. Freshman forward from Memphis, Tennessee. 

He is an average shooter that will need work in some areas. He wants to 
play and contributed well to this year's team. 

Gary Grisham: 6'1", 170 lb. Senior guard from Memphis, Tennessee. A 

consistent player from last season who assisted us greatly at the point 
position in our offense. A fierce competitor. Gary has come in with a 
tremendous attitude about playing and assisted the team in every way 

Scott Brewer: 6', 175 lb. Freshman guard from Memphis, Tennessee. He 

is a good ball handler and is very conscious of learning the correct way 
fundamentally; a very hard worker who will help us in future years. 

Gary Clark: 6', 165 lb. Freshman guard-wing from Memphis, Tennessee. 

Gary is a good shooter and has average speed and quickness; a com- 
petitor in every sense of the word. He was an asset to this year's team. 

Larry Million: 6'4", 185 lb. Senior guard-forward from Trenton, Ohio. A 

starter back from last year who was a great help in both scoring and 
leadership this year. He is an excellent jumper and was one of the best 
defensive players we had this year. 

Steve Barron: 6'1", 165 lb. Freshman guard from Dyer, Tennessee. 

Transfer from Houston Baptist College. Steve comes to us after sitting 
out his freshman season. He played both wing and point this year. Scor- 
ing has been his strength as he was the state's leading scorer while at 
Dyer High School. Steve gave us help this year plus gaining valuable ex- 
perience for the future. 

Dana Northcutt: 6'4", 190 lb. Freshman forward from Waverly, 
Tennessee. Dana has a super attitude about playing and hard worl<. A 
good jumper with medium range for shooting. 

Mike Hardy: 6'1", 155 lb. Senior guard from Memphis, Tennessee. Mil<e 
is one of the best shooters on the squad. He can also contribute in other 
areas as well. We saw good things from Mike this year as last year's ad- 
justment was much slower than expected. 

Art Murphy: 5'5", 150 lb. Senior guard from Trimble, Tennessee. A fiery 
little guy that also brought the crowd to life upon entry in the game. A 
great character who gives constantly to the betterment of the squad in 
many ways. 

Keith Reynolds: 6'2", 180 lb. Sophomore forward from Savannah, 
Tennessee. Last year's leading scorer and most improved player who 
was also second in rebounding. Keith was counted on heavily for both 
scoring and rebounding. 

Joe Pate: 6'5", 190 lb. Junior forward from Tupelo, Mississippi. A junior 
college transfer who played at the forward position. He competed hard 
and contributed greatly to this year's club. 

Greg Schroeder: 6'6", 200 lb. Sophomore forward from Owensboro, 
Kentucky. Transferred here from Mercer University, he delivered often 
in the scoring category. He has a great shooting touch from within 20 feet 
with adequate speed and jumping ability. Greg shows great desire to ex- 
cel in all aspects of the game.

Top of the 
"Dog House' 

The Lady Bulldogs jumped to the top of the "Dog 
House" with an outstanding season. A team that was 
seasoned with the return of four starters from last year's 
16-8 record showed the hustle that has become their 
trademark. Probably the greatest game of the year was 
the defeat handed to the University of Tennessee- 
Knoxville by the Lady Bulldogs. Knoxville was the second 
rated in the state last year. By defeating such major 
college powers, the girls have shown the greatness of this 
year's team. 

Donna Cotton gets a break from the action. 

Theresa Hale goes up for two points.

Advance to Regional 

Tournament in North 


The Union University Lady Bulldogs finished their 
season with a 24-9 record. This was the best record the 
Lady Bulldogs have ever had. 

The regular season ended with a 19-5 record. The 
only team they lost to In Tennessee was Memphis State. 
The other losses were to "top teams" in Mississippi. The 
Lady Bulldogs had a big win over the University of 
Tennessee at Knoxville and two big wins over UT at Mar- 

The West Tennessee College Women's Basketball 
Tournament was held at Martin this year. Union's girls 
defeated Martin twice and suffered their only loss to 
Memphis State. The girls took second place in the tourna- 
ment and received the privilege of going to the State Tour- 
nament at Lambuth College in Jackson. Sherry Henry and 
Theresa Hale were named to the District All-Star Team. 

At the State Tournament, Union placed third giving 
them the chance to play in the Regional Tournament at 
Elon College in North Carolina. In the first State Tourna- 
ment game, the Lady Bulldogs won a big victory over UT- 
Knoxville. In the second game, Union lost to Tennessee 
Tech by two points on a last second basket. Union went on 
to defeat Austin Peay. In the next game Union beat UT- 
Knoxville by a two point margin with a last second shot by 
Theresa Hale. In the game to follow, Memphis pulled 
ahead of Union by three points in the last few seconds. 
Theresa Hale and Sherry Henry were named to the State 
All-Star Team. Sherry was also named the Most Valuable 
Player of the Tournament. 

In the Regional Tournaments, the University of Ken- 
tucky won over the Lady Bulldogs. In the next game, the 

Union girls won a big victory over East Carolina University, 
one of the toughest teams in the tournament. 

In the third game, Madison College from Madison, 
Virginia, beat Union by a slim 4-point margin. 

Union finished in the "Top Ten" in a tournament of 
twenty teams representing Virginia, North Carolina, South 
Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennessee. 

Theresa Hale goes up for two!

Payoff Comes from 

Hard Work and 

Team Spirit 

The women were again coached by Miss Peggy Bir- 
mingham. Her teams are well-l<nown for their brand of 
hustling basketball. She has built a powerhouse second 
to none in the last two years by combining hard work and 
a team spirit among her players. 

Play by the women this year can only be described as 
super. The squad was young, as only one starter was a 
senior. Three sophomores and a freshman hold the key to 
national power for the Lady Bulldogs. Union can be proud 
of the season's outcome and the determination shown by 
the Lady Bulldogs this year.

Karen Trybone— manager, Joyce Falcinelli— manager, Becky Crocker, 
Beverly Smothers, Lisa Meadoviis, Janice Davis, Ann Stephenson,

Ann Stephenson: Senior from Dyersburg, Tennessee. Ann is in the best 
condition of anyone on the team. We looked to her for quicl<ness and fast 
breal<s. She also has a good head, and planned smart strategy for our 
team to win. 

Beverly Smothers: Senior from Rutherford, Tennessee. Beverly is a 
gunner for our team. When she is hot, she is hot, and she cannot be 

Theresa Hale: Sophomore from Lavlna, Tennessee. Theresa is one of 
the best athletes to come to Union. We are quite fortunate to have her in 
our school. We can always count on her to move to the goal and score. 
Even under pressure, she gained valuable points for us. 

Nancy Falrless: Sophomore from Trenton, Tennessee. Nancy is one of 
the finest girls ever to attend Union, and was often the playmaker for our 
team. We depended on her to take many needed shots from the field, 
because she shoots and makes such a high percentage of her shots. 

Sherry Henry: Sophomore from Union City, Tennessee.Sherry has a 

nice, soft shot which is needed for a winning team. She rebounded both 
offensively and defensively for us to win. 

Donna Cotton: Freshman from Medina, Tennessee. Donna brings height 
and shooting ability to our team. Being left-handed and having good 
jump shots are assets that she has which benefited our team. 

Lisa Meadows: Sophomore from Lexington, Tennessee. Lisa has ex- 
cellent eyes for hitting the basket. We looked to her to shoot and score 
often for our team. She had much potential which developed and proved 
rewarding for her and the team. 

Darlene Williams: Sophomore from Reagan, Tennessee. Darlene is a 
fine defensive player. She guards well, and rebounds consistently. 
Darlene is probably the most improved player on the team. 

Janice Davis: Junior from Memphis, Tennessee. Janice is a good ball 
handler on the team. She has quicl< hands, fine rhythm, and nice moves 
on the court. 

Shearon Smith: Senior from Selmer, Tennessee. Shearon brings 
maturity and good basl<etball experience to our team. She has height 
which helped us on the boards. Her knowledge of the game was of much 
value to our team this year. 

Kay Coley Hall: Senior from Jackson, Tennessee. Kay brought height, 
strength, experience, and maturity to our team. She is good on the 
boards and moves across the lane well. 

Becky Crocker: Freshman from Memphis, Tennessee. Becky's 
enthusiasm for basketball is obvious at once. Her desire to play was very 
important during her first year at Union. 

Debbie Webb: Nursing student from Jackson, Tennessee. Debbie has a 

good knowledge of the game. This experience will add much to our 
team. She knows how to screen and throw well because she gains her 
position quickly and easily. 

Teresa Stephenson: Freshman from Mercer, Tennessee. Teresa had a 
nice soft shot which helped us in the area of scoring. She worked on her 
aggressiveness and her defense. She moved well up and down the 

Team Benefits from 
Individual Efforts 

With the ever-increasing popularity of tennis in our 
country, there has been an added interest of the game at 
Union. The tennis team plays matches with such teams as 
Memphis State, Ole Miss, Florence State and other

The relationship between the President's office and 
the students of Union University is one of mutual 
dependence and cooperation. 

Dr. Craig strives to assist the students by securing 
the best administrative and faculty personnel possible, by 
providing a sound fiscal program, and by winning new 
friends for Union. 

The strenuous on-going effort of the past year has 
been to take the new campus plans to a completion, set 
for fall, 1975.

High school and junior college students from 
Tennessee and surrounding states are personally con- 
tacted by Union's four Admissions Counselors. Guided by 
Dr. IVIilburn W. Blanton, Director of Admissions, the 
program has had good success. An eight per cent in- 
crease in numbers of students was again shown for the 
1974-75 school year, with a growth of 40 per cent in the 
freshman class. 

Students are from 19 different states and several 
foreign countries. Women outnumber men five to three

developments in the field of psychology and that these are 
important to understanding the past, present, and future 
of the person, the department seeks to incorporate the 
results of twentieth century thinking into the program 
wherever possible. Emphasis is placed on student in-

Physical Education 

The Department of Health and Physical Education 
believes physical education to be that part of the total 
school program which adds its unique contribution 
primarily through motor skills of interest to youth and of 
value in later life as recreational activities; and with the 
development of socially desirable habits, attitudes, and 
knowledge which contribute to the aims of education. 

The aims of the Health and Physical Education 
Department are as follows: to build a basis in scientific in- 
formation for good health attitudes and habits; to guide 
youth in the conservation and improvement of their own 
health and fitness; to cultivate in the student socially 
desirable attitudes and traits, to offer opportunity for 
recreation; to emphasize the acquiring of skills in 
recreational physical activities that can be used pleasantly 
and profitably in later life; to prepare teachers, health 
educators, supervisors, administrators and other 
specialists in the fields of school and community health, 
physical education, and recreation.

Exemplifying the combination of classroom studies 
with practical experience is the basis of the Nursing 
Program in the Independent Department of Nursing. Here 
future nurses are taught fundamentals of physiological 
concepts in the classroom and given a chance to exercise 
this knowledge in daily hospital, medical center, or nur- 
sing home visits. 

The First Year students are guided through extensive 
class work, laboratory courses, and practice sessions in 
the mechanics of patient care. The Second Year students 
have additional in-depth class work and extensive 
sessions where practical application of nursing principles 
are learned.

As the final pages of the 1975 edition of the Lest We Forget are prepared to be 
mailed, my task as editor is almost completed. I feel 1 have learned a great deal this 
year by working on the yearbook; besides the journalism knowledge, I learned more 
about people. I learned that when times get rough some people seem to disappear, 
while others will stay with you and help finish up the job. 

A few people deserve special thanks for their help; Mrs. Foellinger, Dr. Baker, 
Larry Hearn, my staff, and all my brothers who gave me encouragement when we 
were late for a deadline and managed to put up with an editor who was hard to live 

The staff and I have tried to present a realistic picture of Union, not just the rose- 
tinted side. I realize we ;^rj6bably did not quite accomplish that goal, but I hope we 
came close. If seems t^afeports page and camguss.6ea^ queens are more impor- 
tant to our stud^tifs tharvw^^j-oblems, >aequali^' a)p^stajyation. You be the judge
